    • Additionally to the displaying of city events, the City Wall also has an strong educational content on environmental issues. City Wall presents images, videos, descriptions and discussions on how nature in Helsinki benefits and disturbs dwellers. A single tree, for instance, can be both a useful physical shelter, an appreciated element in the urban landscape, a source for an irritating pollinates and a danger for traffic. People are welcome to go to the City Wall Flickr page and add comments there. They can add images to the discussion by attaching tags "niceness" for nice things and "clownish" for things that are nuisance in Flickr.¶

      The exhibition aims to evoke discussion, for example on what nuisances people should just adapt themselves to, what nuisances they should fight or control, how different nuisances can be prevented and how benefits of nature can be improved. The City Wall is then all about how an interaction-based multi touch input display works as a type of community chat tool to enable discussion on topical environmental issues.
